PPi Technologies GROUP (banner name) is fast approaching its 25th year in business. We have always been fueled by the desire to make a positive difference in the world by manufacturing low energy machinery and using plastic materials to make pouches and VialPaQs that are environment-safe. We all are aware that this is now more relevant than ever before, with plastic garbage filling the oceans and countrysides, and getting a bad name in the commercial world.
Based on the world’s leading climate science organization’s landmark report in late 2018 for the United Nations, we were warned of the urgency for fundamental environmental transformation to halt global warming including the worst effects of climate change from third world countries that have no policies to prevent harm to all of us in the next century.
This made us think long and hard about our role in the plastic pouch world and the opportunity we have to help all the brand leaders using pouches to send the message that our S.E.C.A.M.P. approach is the end of life pouch solution. This high temperature system produces materials that can be used to make electricity and a range of by-products that can be re-used. Then at the end of that life cycle the next plasma syn gasification takes place. A continuous circle of making, using, producing energy and by-products and then more syn gasification. No land fills or oceans involved!
The challenge has been to get businesses and brand leaders to look at how to handle the challenge of collecting all garbage and sending it to the syn gasification plant.
We all know that business has the power to change the world. It must do more than just be an engine of providing jobs, growth and financial prosperity for the few. We strongly believe every leader must ask what responsible growth looks like, and how their business can improve the way we live and work, sustain and restore natural resources, and generate value for the many, and not just the few.
We know that business must be a force for good and we are not alone. At this moment and right in front of us there is the move by the big stores including Amazon to look for how to have a sustainable safe environmental approach to brands. The decision all leaders face today is not whether they will choose to answer the growing call of millennials, investors, customers, employees and communities demanding more of business, but rather when and how to recognize they must do more for the environment than just talk. Their brands should emphasize that they are safe and secure for the environment.
Today the world is facing the crisis that the COVID-19 pandemic has created for so many. The opportunity for business to step up and do more is required. Our recently launched in2itivTM hand sanitizer program, with two special USA made applications is an example, one being the environmental safe airofil spray bottle (Spray and Sanitize) for hospitals, schools and offices and the other a gel VialPaQTM for on the go, anywhere use, when you need it (golf, tennis, camping etc.). Providing sanitizer in these novel ways is a game changer.
We are focused on helping brands through a process to deliver their greatest impact and define what growth looks like for their employees, their customers and communities. Our focus is on helping uncover opportunities and strategies to activate more brands into pouches and VialPaQsTM for relevance and to responsibly address today’s social and environmental challenges.
With the tremendous acceleration of e-commerce and the growing digital needs of brand managers, we made the strategic decision to expand our expertise to include a compelling digital offering that ensures we can deliver a complete connected customer experience from machinery FAT, to online service trouble shooting and sales demonstrations. Over the past four months we have helped create, and have worked closely with, machinery customers to activate teams and create a comfortable culture in this new remote reality.
